ANC must shut up motor mouth Malema

When I heard that ANCYL leader Julius Malema was going to give a lecture in Polokwane, I thought it was a joke. How do you invite Malema, of all people, to do that?

Part of his speech was aired on SABC news and as usual, Malema attacked Mosiuoa Lekota and Mbhazima Shilowa.

When Gauteng education MEC Angie Motshekga told youth in Mpumalanga that one didn't need education to be a leader, was she trying to protect Malema?

I hope not because he needs to go back to school and learn.

Malema is a liability to the ANC. He is defiant, uncontrollable and undermines the ruling party's leadership.

JZ has said that the ANC had advised Malema not to make irresponsible and damaging statements.

But before Zuma's words were cold, Malema spewed bile again.

Is the ANC really prepared to lose votes in next year's polls because of Malema? Already it is losing members to Cope because of this.

The ANC leadership has to shoulder some responsibility for Malema's venomous utterances because it failed to silence the motor mouth.

Zuma seems to have a soft spot for Malema and has never publicly rebuked him.

There is a growing perception that Malema is a pawn. The ANC should end the perception by silencing him once and for all.
